Flood Warning Infrastructure Network
About Queensland's Flood Warning Infrastructure Network (FWIN)
Early warning can be an effective measure to reduce the potentially devastating impacts of flooding, so it is vital that we work together for the best possible flood warnings. In Queensland, we have more than 3300 rainfall and river gauges that inform statewide flood warnings and forecasts. These flood warning infrastructure assets are owned and operated by more than 60 entities including state and local government, the private sector, and the Bureau of Meteorology.
